Songs for Prayer and Discernment

Recently, on our Giving Voice Facebook page someone asked for friends to share songs from any genre that speak to God, discernment, and vocations.  (For those of you who aren’t familiar, Giving Voice is an organization within which sisters under the age of 50 come together for networking, prayer, support, action, and fun.)  I thought I’d share some current favorites of my own and some songs from the list for your own prayer and listening pleasure.
